    The only news I have is that we are currently conducting backgrounds on 80+ people. So if you have made the cut this far. Please make sure your references know that we will be contacting them and please provide the forms we need in a timely manner. Patience is key. I'm lucky that since I am on patrol I am only doing one background investigation. But some of our detectives are doing 3 or 4. Just stay the course. Police and fire interviews will be in July.

    Hi scotty_appleton814, any more news? I made the top 80 and have submitted my pack for background investigation. I’m currently waiting for the detective conducting my background check to reach out to schedule the interview portion of the background check. I submitted the pack on May 5th. Checking my emails like a crazy man!

    Our list may end up with somewhere around 40 people. We will most likely send anywhere from 3 to 10 people right off the back. That's figures is based on our past 3 lists immediate openings. Definitely going to be many openings during the course of this list. Good luck to you. Hopefully you make it.

    Written Examination

    Candidates have two options for completing the written examination. You may take the written examination with the City of Elgin or through the National Testing Network Inc.

    OPTION 1:

    The City of Elgin administers our written examination through National Testing Network, Inc. You must fill out an application and schedule a written examination through National Testing Network by going to www.nationaltestingnetwork.com, selecting "Police Officer Jobs" and sign up for the City of Elgin under "Illinois".

    What you will do on the www.nationaltestingnetwork.com website:
    • Complete an application
    • Review and confirm once again the information and minimum requirements for the City of Elgin police officer position
    • Find detailed information about the testing process for the written examination
    • Schedule your own examination time and location that is convenient for you. Available dates for the test are listed under each of the different testing sites. The last day to take a test to qualify for the City of Elgin position is April 26, 2019.
    • The fee for the test is $49.00. Submit your voucher code at the time of payment to reduce the cost to $39.00. The voucher is only good toward scheduling a test with the City of Elgin through National Testing Network. If it is not used at payment time you will be responsible for the entire amount of the test. The City will not retroactively reimburse the $10.00 credit.
    • You will have the opportunity to take an online practice test at ergopracticetests.com for an additional fee, if you choose

    OPTION 2:

    The City of Elgin Police Department will be conducting the written examination at the Elgin Police Station, 151 Douglas Ave, Elgin, IL on specific dates. There is no cost for taking the test if you take it at the Elgin Police Department at one of the dates listed below. The examination consists of the same written examination given by National Testing Network, and will include a physical agility portion that will satisfy the Power Test card requirement for those applicants that need the Power Test Certification. The physical agility portion of this test is optional and is not required if you already have a Power Test Certification.
    • Dates for this test:
      • Sunday, March 10, 2019 at 2:00 p.m.
      • Tuesday, March 12, 2019 at 5:00 p.m.
      • Saturday, March 16, 2019 at 9:00 a.m.

      • Wednesday, April 10, 2019 at 5:00 p.m.
      • Saturday, April 20, 2019 at 9:00 a.m.
    • The written exam takes approximately 2 and a half hours to complete. The physical agility test will be given after the written examination.
    • Candidates do not need to take the physical agility portion of the examination if they already have a valid Power Test Certification.
    • Candidates should wear appropriate clothes and footwear if they are participating in the physical agility portion of the test.
    • Space is limited to 40 applicants per time slot.
    • You will receive an email from us once you submit your application with directions on how to schedule yourself for the written exam within 48-72 hours of submitting your application.

    Upon completion of the written examination, all candidate scores are automatically forwarded to the City of Elgin. Candidates who are one of the top 80 candidates scoring at or above 70% on the written (VIDEO PORTION) examination will be moved to the background investigation stage of the process. Candidates passing the background investigation will be scheduled for an oral interview.
